New Section 8 Notice
This is just a quick email to let you know that the section 8 prescribed notice form in England has been amended (again!) by regulations.
This is the notice served on tenants before issuing proceedings under any of the grounds set out in schedule 2 of the Housing Act 1988 - the most important of which is ground 8, the serious rent arrears ground.
As this is a prescribed form, it is important that the new form is served from now on. Any of the old forms served on or after 6 April 2016 will be invalid. This applies to properties in England. Wales continue to use old form
